WOMEN & THINGS brings comedy cabaret to the Cumming club, September 15

After a long tour of Los Angeles at the Lyric Hyperion, “Women & Things” heads to New York for a weekend of shows at Club Cumming and the Duplex.

Mimi von Schack plays both women and things in this multi-character cabaret. Immerse yourself in von Schack’s fantastical and fabulous inner world of near-living objects and larger-than-life characters: from a fading starlet to a biblical bombshell, from a desperate phone to a bra that just died. ‘be taken.

“Women & Things” is written and performed by award-winning comedian Mimi von Schack (Julianne St Germaine: Live!, Upright Citizens Brigade, The Groundlings, Hollywood & Edinburgh Fringes) and directed by John Milhiser (Saturday Night Live, Ghostbusters, Drama Club ), with live music by Marshall Ross (Carly and the Universe).

von Schack describes the show as “Peewee’s Playhouse meets Liza with a Z: it’s camp about over-the-top feminine tropes and the silliness of everyday life.” With eye-catching costumes and catchy musical parody numbers, this character cabaret pokes fun at the details of life.
